I had a house fire and lost everything. They showed up and my kids got clothing to wear to school the next day. My kids got toothbrushes, shampoo, socks, pajamas, underwear and a couple of outfits to get them through the school week. They apologized for not being able to do more. It was everything to my kids. My littlest one got a teddy bear and my preteen got a journal and a hug. I cannot thank them enough. I did not even get their names. THANK-YOU. Please know that everything turned out all right. I just wish I could thank them in person now that I think back at what they did and when.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My kids faces.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Do the same.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I did not know them or of them but they showed up when I needed help and just delivered it to me and my kids.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Friendly and caring. They gave my kids what they needed to get threw the next couple of days after a housefire. Better yet, they talked to my kids and gave them hugs.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help more kids.

Ways to make it better...

I had gotten their names.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

I do not know. But since I never heard of them, probably more money and more workers to help more families.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Whoever you are, thank-you.

Dedicated to serving the needs of abandoned, abused, neglected and at-risk children. Provide services such as provinging lawyers for abused kids, education advocates to work in the schoolsystem and needed basics such as clothing and school supplies to at-risk youth. You can even earmark yout donations. If not designated, your donation is placed into their general fund and usd where they need ot the most. However, if you want your money used for school supplies, you can have it earmarked so and the charity will buy school supplies for a child in need. It is good to know where your money goes and hw it will be used.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

making sure that children are in safe, stable, loving homes and that their basic needs are met.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with children and families.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

continue to to defend human and civil rights of minor children; to advocate for the elimination and the prevention of cruelty to children; to provide relief of the poor, distressed and underprivileged; and to promote social welfare.
